Alpena Bio-refinery

Feyen Zylstra has been heavily involved in the Alpena Bio-refinery, the first plant of its type. The Alpena Bio-refinery was a prototype made possible, in part, through major grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Michigan Center of Energy Excellence. This particular plant takes waste material from the production of decorative panels and other sources and turns it into ethanol and potassium acetate. When the refinery reaches full production, it will have the capacity to produce more than 890,000 gallons of ethanol annually! Feyen Zylstra provided the Design Build expertise for this facility.
